TONIGHT I Pray that the Lord to help you to put off anger, loss of temper and bitterness and put on being tenderhearted and sensitive! You may have some obstacles in your path, but the good news is, the Power that is for you is greater than any power that is against you. I declare power to violently resist the enemy! The Holy Spirit can conquer all of the storms in your life!!! Take His hand and as you walk with Him be as the birds that fly into the WIND as it pushes against them, it moves them higher into the heavens. That even in the worst storms the Lord will hold you in His arms and allow you to rest in Him. In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen… I Love You All!!! God bless you!!! http://dlvr.it/5SynH4
Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall. Proverbs 16:18
What brought Adam and Eve down? We assume it was the attractiveness of the fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. But it wasn’t the fruit; it was what the fruit promised.
Satan told them, “God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil” (Genesis 3:5). In other words, “Eve, listen. You will be a goddess. Adam, you will be a god. Come on, go for it.” And they did. The devil had appealed to their pride.
That is one of the devil’s subtle ways to strike: he attacks us through pride. Popularity can be more deadly than persecution. Christians start believing their own press and become inflated with pride.
First the devil comes to us and says, You are worthless. You are a piece of garbage. God would never use someone like you.
We reply, “Well, I don’t know. The Bible says that if I will confess my sin, God is faithful and just to forgive me my sins and to cleanse me from all unrighteousness. And the Bible also says that God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise. So I think God will use me.”
Then the devil changes his whole mode of attack. Instead of trying to tear us down, he whispers in our ear, You are the awesome man of God (or the wonderful woman of virtue)! Everything you say is wonderful. You are so great! And we soak it up.
I had to share my devotional with you today from Greg Laurie. I think what he is talking about here has happened to every single one of us. We just have to remember to stay in the Word for that is where we get our strength. God is not the author of confusion. It is so on point that I believe that all of you would enjoy reading it. I hope you all have a Simply Heavenly day!!! God bless you!!! Jesus Loves you!!! ♥♥♥
Tonight I pray that you come to the Lord with a happy heart and a teachable spirit, because a happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing. I pray that the Lord reveals to you that a closer walk with Him is a life where you will be continually renewed through the power and might of His Spirit. I pray that as we seek the Lord with an open mind we will see that our journey with Jesus involves being transformed by the renewing of our mind on a daily basis through prayer and by being in Your Word. I pray that you are aware that He keeps a steady eye on us and that He understands us perfectly and still loves us!!!! He embraces us with HIS Everlasting Love!!! I know the things He has planned for you. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. I pray that you stand on that faith and give yourself fully to the Lord and this adventure of increasing attentiveness to His Presence in our lives. In Jesus Name I Pray, Amen and Amen!!!! I Love You All!!! God Bless You!!! ♥♥♥ http://dlvr.it/5S41H7
What Easter Truly Means to Me
Last night my husband and I watched the Passion of the Christ and I have to say no matter how many times I watch that movie I cry. It really hurts me to see the pain that Jesus endured for all of us. I have heard people say “It was the Jews that killed him” or “It was the Romans that killed Him!” To be honest it was neither of them that killed my Jesus. It was LOVE that put Jesus up on that cross to die an unbearably painful death for each and every one of us.
You see Jesus knew that we would be judged on our merit and He knew that every single one of us would fall short. The Bible says: For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). Without His love and saving grace we would all be doomed. For the punishment for sin is death.
God originally created the earth and man perfect. But when Adam and Eve disobeyed God and rebelled against Him and sinned, He had to punish them. The punishment for sin is death. God being a righteous judge could not pardon our sin. Likewise, overlooking sin would make the holy God unjust. Death is God’s just consequence for sin. The Bible says “For the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). Even good works cannot make up for wrongs against the holy God. Compared to His goodness, “Our righteousness is as filthy rags” (Isaiah 64:6).
Ever since Adam’s sin, every human that has ever lived has been guilty of disobeying God’s righteous laws. Sin is not just big things like murder or blasphemy, but also includes the love of money, hatred of enemies, a lying tongue and pride. Because of sin, every one of us deserves death eternal separation from God in hell.
The promise required an innocent death. Luckily for us we serve a very loving perfect God. He knew what we were going to do and He sent His only Begotten Son to be our Lamb. It would be through His shed blood on the cross that we would have forgiveness for our sin. We have to remember that the Lord is a Holy God and He cannot let sin go unpunished and that is why Jesus came to earth. He was born of a virgin, died on the cross for our sins and on the third day He arose from the dead!
The Scripture says, “For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). Evidence affirms that the sinless Jesus bled and died on a cross. Most importantly, the Bible explains why Jesus’ death and resurrection provide the only entrance to heaven.
So How do we receive this free gift of salvation? We are saved by grace through faith. First, we must hear the gospel the good news of Jesus’ death and resurrection (Ephesians 1:13). Then, we must believe—fully trust the Lord Jesus (Romans 1:16). This involves repentance, a changing of mind about sin and Christ (Acts 3:19), and calling on the name of the Lord (Romans 10:9-10, 13). Jesus tell us in the Bible:
Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.” “How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second into their mother’s womb to be born!” Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. John 3:3-6
If you want a new life in Christ Jesus, ask Him into your heart today. Simply pray this: Lord Jesus Christ, I believe that You took the pain and the sins of world on the cross to give me new life. I ask You to come into my heart and to give me Your peace and joy. I confess that I am a sinner that I have gone my own way and have done wrong. Please forgive me for my sins. I receive You now as my Lord and Savior. Please fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Help me to follow You and to serve You all the days of my life. Thank you so much for loving me, in Jesus name I pray, Amen. If you prayed that prayer you are a new creature in Christ Jesus! You are Born Again! May God bless you and Happy Easter!!! http://dlvr.it/5RrNWw
TONIGHT I Pray that every counsel, design, plan, desire, expectation, imagination, device and activity of the enemy against your life be rendered null and void!!! We can’t reach our highest potential in our own ability. It’s going to take the Most High God breathing in our direction, making a way where it looks like there is no way. Don’t let the giant problems, restrictions, or even legitimate excuses deter your dreams and overpower your passions. Go for what God has placed in your heart! I pray that every power prolonging any battle in your life to receive permanent defeat in Jesus’ name! The spirit of fear and worry is overturned! Move forward in the name of Jesus Christ I pray!!! Be Blessed!!! In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen. I love you all. God bless you!!! ♥♥♥ http://dlvr.it/5Rhn1h
Make the Right Choice
I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live. —Deuteronomy 30:19
When I first became a Christian, I decided that I would somehow find a way to live in two worlds. I was planning to hang out with my old friends and still be a Christian. For a time, I felt as though I were in a state of suspended animation. I wasn’t comfortable with my old buddies, but I wasn’t quite comfortable with the Christians, either. So I decided to be Mr. Solo Christian. I even said to my friends, “Don’t worry about me. You’re thinking I will become a fanatic and carry a Bible and say, ‘Praise the Lord.’ It will never happen. I’m going to be cool about this. I won’t embarrass you, but I’m going to believe in God now.”
However, as God became more real to me and I began to follow Him more closely, He changed my life and my outlook, and my priorities began to change.
There are people who will discourage you from growing spiritually. They will say, “I think it’s good that you are a Christian. I go to church too, at Christmas and Easter, and for weddings. But you’re getting a little too fanatical. You actually brought a Bible to work the other day. We were so embarrassed. You’re no fun anymore. We’re glad you have made changes in your life, but don’t become too extreme.” There are people like this who will discourage you.
When this happens, you have the choice to either do what God wants you to do or to go with the flow. Are you going to let people hold you back? Are you going to let people discourage you from wholehearted commitment to Jesus Christ?
This is a good devotional today from Pastor Greg and I really like that he speaks to a strong walk with Jesus Christ and putting Him first place in your life. After what Jesus did in my life I will never be ashamed of him again and I will serve Him all the rest of the days of my life. I hope that you have a Simply Heavenly Day…. God bless you!!! :):):)
TONIGHT I pray that every good thing presently eluding your purpose should flow into you in the name of Jesus! Release for your harvest! May there be a wave of God’s glory and a move of His Presence, Power and Person to hit this earth in an unprecedented way! HE is gracious to you; If you call upon HIM, He will answer you. All you who wait for Him Weep no more. Salvation is here. Cry out to Him for help! HE will instruct you and teach you in the way which you shall go: That HE will guide you. He has gone before you and will make a way where there seems to be none. I pray that you follow Him closely. I pray that as you stay close to Him, you will find that it is In HIS Presence that there is peace and joy!!! Trust in Him, lean on Him, and don’t be afraid of falling, for HE shall always catch you and set you back on your feet. I pray that as You abide under the shadow of HIS wings, that HE will hide you from the enemy. The enemy may look for you, but he will not find you. Stay close to the Holy Spirit. You abide in Him and He will abide in you. NOTHING shall by any means harm you. In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen. I Love You All!!! God bless you!!! ♥♥♥ http://dlvr.it/5RSy4x
My dog practices selective listening. When he doesn’t like what I am saying, he acts as though he doesn’t understand me. If he is in my room at bedtime and I tell him to leave, he looks at me as if to say, “What?” It’s as though his hearing is gone. On the other hand, he can be asleep behind closed doors, and if I go downstairs, open the cupboard, and pull out his leash, he suddenly has supersonic hearing. He is right there at my side. When he likes what I want him to do, my dog hears and obeys me. But when he doesn’t like what I want him to do, my dog doesn’t hear and doesn’t obey.
We can be the same with God. When God tells us to do something we like, we say, “Yes, Lord!” But when He tells us to stop doing something, we say, “God, I think you’re cutting out on me. There’s too much static. I’m not hearing you clearly.”
Jesus said, “You are My friends if you do whatever I command you” (John 15:14). He didn’t say, “You are My friends if you do the things that you personally agree with.” God has told us in His Word how we are to live. It is not for us to pick and choose sections of the Bible that we like and toss the rest aside.
If God tells you to do something, He says it for good reason, and you need to obey Him. If God says not to do something, He also says it for good reason. Even if you don’t understand it, obey Him.
I really enjoyed this devotional today. It isn’t always easy to listen to the Lord and follow what He wants us to do. But when you look back at your life and all of the stupid things He has saved you from…It’s like Thank you Jesus!!! Hallelujah!!! I hope you have a Simply Heavenly day. God bless you!!! http://dlvr.it/5R4ltd
Tonight I Pray you are constantly aware of HIS great Presence in your life. I pray that you realize that He is the one that directs your steps if you will allow Him to. Hold tightly to His Hand and let Him lead you step by step through life. I pray that you don’t worry about the uncertainty of the future, the secret things of the future belong to the Lord Jesus and as you trust in Him He will take them into His keeping and relieve you of the load that you carry. I pray that you cast all your cares on Him for He cares for you. Whenever you find yourself worrying about what is going to happen in the future, give it all up to Jesus and He will show you step by step the journey ahead. Trust in Him to open the up the way before you as you walk in the light of His great love and unfailing grace. In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen. I Love You All!!!! God Bless You!!! ♥♥♥ http://dlvr.it/5QvzrC
Tonight I Pray that you have the desire to seek out the Lord and delight in spending time with Him! Realize like Mary did that there is great importance in just sitting at the feet of Jesus. When we wait upon Him, He will lead us where He wants us to be. I pray that you know that you have the Creator of the universe as your Lord and He loves you! What more could you need? I pray that you realize that it is when you are not connecting with Him at a deep level that you have a lack in your life and walk with Him. Our part in this life is to learn to put all of our trust into Him, refusing to worry about anything! I pray that you will forget what is behind you and press on to what is ahead the prize which God has called us heavenward in Jesus Christ!!! Walk In that LIGHT!!! In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen… I love you all!!! God bless you!!! ♥♥♥ http://dlvr.it/5Pz7JV
Many, O Lord my God, are the wonders which You have done,And Your thoughts toward us;There is none to compare with You.If I would declare and speak of them,They would be too numerous to count. Psalm 40:5
One of the things that I love so much about the Lord is how He thinks about us. It is amazing to me that God is thinking of me. And yet we are told here that His thoughts towards us cannot be counted. God is continually thinking about you, His child.
Psalm 139:17-18 says that God’s thoughts towards us are more than the grains of sand by the seashore. He is the Lord over all creation, yet He is so mindful of each of His creatures. Jesus said that He cares about the hairs of your head and the sparrows that fall (Luke 12:5-6). He is thinking about you now.
Sometimes I think He just wants us to breathe Him in, so that He can bless and restore us. Lift up empty hands of faith to receive His precious Presence. The Light, Life, Joy, and Peace that will flow freely from the Holy Spirit when we turn our focus to Him. Today I am just going to rest in Him and be blessed! I hope the you make the choice to rest in Jesus on this Simply Heavenly day!!! God bless you!!!
TONIGHT I PRAY that you refuse to worry! In this world there’ll always be something enticing you to worry. That is the nature of this fallen world that we live in. Things are not as they should be. So the temptation to be anxious is constantly with you, trying to worm its way into your mind. I pray you realize the best defense is continual communication with the Lord, richly seasoned with Thanksgiving. I pray that you stay aware of HIS PRESENCE, allowing Him to fill your mind with His Light and Peace, leaving no room for fear. I pray this awareness lifts you above your circumstances, enabling you to see problems from HIS perspective. For when you do this with HIM you can keep the wolves of worry at bay. I pray that you never forget WHO lives within you. He can bring order to your day and help you to control your thoughts and actions. You only need to make the choice of how much of Him you want in your day… In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen… I Love You All!!! God bless you!!! ♥♥♥ http://dlvr.it/5P2gLB
